The Iowa Idea: Devin Green
“Paint the world with good design.”
On this episode of The Iowa Idea Podcast, I’m joined by Devin Green. Devin is a full stack designer working in the space of brand design, digital design, and development.
We talk about Devin’s journey from growing up in Detroit and Pontiac, Michigan to moving to Iowa. Devin talks about his love of art combined with his early exploration and experimentation of Photoshop and Linux. With a nudge and inspiration from his uncle, Devin turned his love of design and art into a business.
We dig into Devin’s early influences and mix it up on how we think about art and design. Devin turns the table and asks me questions about art and design. I really appreciate Devin’s mission to “paint the world with good design.” A link to Devin’s site is included in the show description.
It was an honor having Devin on the show. I hope you enjoy the episode.
So, I’ve been in the field of graphic and web design for over 12 years. I’ve had the honor to work for many clients around the world. My goal is always to help my clients achieve their goals and make the world a better place through branding, UI/UX, and beautiful design.
Design, to me, is more than just putting pictures together. Your website, logo and marketing materials need to be based on your principles, mission, and goals. When you hire me, I will pull inspiration from you, your client or customer base, and other existing visuals to create designs that work and communicate for you and your brand.
Branding is mandatory. I want to make sure you look good from the ground up. Regardless of how many new tricks and tools I learn to bring your brand to life, I still have my favorites like Adobe Illustrator, Adobe Photoshop, Webflow, Affinity Designer and Affinity Photo. Whether you need a full website overhaul for your OctoberCMS or WordPress site or full branding redesign, my toolbox is packed with solutions.
No matter what each job requires, I’m always up for new endeavors no matter how challenging.
